A knife doesn’t always need to be highly specialized in regards to function, which is why our EDC knives range from versatile designs intended to help you throughout your daily routine, to intricate statement pieces that are bound to drum up conversation among fellow enthusiasts. These are our daily drivers, accumulating a lifetime’s worth of stories with every cut.
